How is that a necessity or a commodity? If it's neither, it's not gouging. Taking advantage of the market, yes, but not gouging.
That's a negative.
You don't need that AR to survive, so it doesn't qualify as a gouge.
Where have you been???
ouu free shipping
I just thought it was funny, and it does fit the definition of price gouging.
I need to go over to Cabelas and buy three of those, just to flip em. $729 at the gun counter and they get several in a week. That would pay for my drift boat.
One of those went for $3500 on their auction part of the site last week
It's rediculous! It's ubsurd! It's ludicrous!
I'll tell you what I'll do. If you have your heart set on a Bushmaster carbine, I'll sell you my "slightly used" Bushmaster for the low low price of $2699.95!
(Assault clipz sold seperately)
And thats the point. I am now mixed on how I feel about places like Buds selling these for that much. I think it sucks on one level but then again I can see their point. They sell at MSRP to people who turn around and flip them for triple that. I feel bad for people that want to buy for personal use cause the flippers are messing up their chance to buy at MSRP.
Just a crappy thing all around. Just a mess.
Heck I want a carry handle, all out of stock. A lousy carry handle....
Hell I will throw in 5 rounds of Wolf ammo and sell for $2697.95
Can't wait to see earnings for swhc and rgr for this quarter. It's not just AR's that are flying off the shelves. The ammo shelves at my local Walmart are almost completely bare.
Let's see -
Someone has a product that MANY are now wanting.
Gasoline is one product. Price has gone up, but, people are still buying it.
There is a "panic" around the U.S. right now, and EVERYONE that NEVER thought about buying an AR or 'other' semi-auto rifle that 'looks evil' now wants one.
Supply and demand.
"Jimmy-Joe Rip Snot" has _________ ARs. He may or may not be able to get more, or sell more IF an AWB is passed (in some configuration), so, making $$$ to pay his employees and feed his family are on his mind.
Some of 'us' bought before the Newtown tragedy. Some are now wanting to buy.
The "price of poker" has gone up.
Got a hunch. . . . bet a bunch.
One of the very few times in my life, I bought 'early'.
For a reasonable amount, I'll let my new, never fired AR6721 go.
That reasonable price: *today only!! $61,999.95 + S/H & fees (insurance, FFL fees, etc.)
ETA: The price includes ONE 20 round magazine.
The flipping is killing the market.
Business doesn't want o sell something for $800 that the buyer then sells for $1500 the next day.
You can't blame them really but it does suck.
I'm a member of a few local gun groups. Even folks who are supposed to be friends are gouging each other.
I have withdrawn from most of them, as I now know the character of these people. I also know that if SHTF, many folks will be greedy and potentially dangerous.
Unless I'm missing something that page is Class III firearms and those never were affordable anyway.
I thought FA ARs were closer to $10k. I thought FA Mac10s and the like were $3k.
For someone to not sell their product at the top price that buyers will pay is foolish.
So where can I get a Bushwhacker ? ....
Buds is moving a lot of guns at or near pre-frenzy prices.
I'm not looking at guns right now but am loading up on 223 reloading supplies. I have a shop in the region that is super steady on prices but volume is way up (another way to make a profit) they just finished off an order of 108,000 Hornady 55 gr jhpbt bullets with another 108,000 arriving Monday. Shelves are still stocked - the 55 gr sp is available for a little more (and always in stock) and primers are not a problem with sm pistol/ rifle at just under $30 per 1000 and about anything else one would want.
What are you guys complaining about. It comes with free shipping...
